Madibeng fraud probe deferred

Comment on this story

Johannesburg - The provincial intervention into the Madibeng local municipality in the North West was postponed on Wednesday, the premier's office said.

Spokesperson Lesiba Moses Kgwele said it would continue in three weeks pending the conclusion of investigations into allegations of fraud and corruption within the municipality.

“The process as adopted by provincial executive council was put on hold pending consultations and engagements with the Minister of Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs, Richard Baloyi.”

Kgwele said the minister would appoint a team from his office to expedite the probe.

“We will support the investigation in the spirit of promoting co-operative governance and sound intergovernmental relations within and across all spheres of government.” - Sapa
